The shiny farthing in the giant shit pudding that was the Young British Artists movement were Jake and Dinos Chapman.

http://www.jakeanddinoschapman.com/ (http://www.jakeanddinoschapman.com/)

Key works to check would be "Zygotic Acceleration" (in honor of the comment about Djurdjevic above  ;D) and the "Hell" diorama.

"Hell" was destroyed in a warehouse fire in 2004 (please insert sarcastic comment here) but was reinvented as the larger and more extensive "Fucking Hell" of 2009.

By far my favorite (running pretty close to "Fucking Hell") was "Insult to Injury", a 2003 desecration of a mint condition set of 80 Goya etchings printed from the original plates.

The influence of Vermeer on Richter is well documented and I think the relationship between Lesende and the Girl with the Pearl Earring is not a coincidence. Despite this, I think Richter's work can stand on its own merits as both modern and original in the same way that Shostakovich Op.87 can despite being directly influenced by the WTC.

Vermeer didn't paint over photographs. I don't understand the contemporary aversion of simply picking up a brush and reproduce a subjective interpretation of reality which says as much about the subject being represented as it does about the artist. Is it really that complicated to paint something honestly, without relying to some sort of gimmick?

Is it really that complicated to paint something honestly, without relying to some sort of gimmick?

As far as I am aware Richter (who has always worked from secondary media) projected photos on to canvas as source material rather than directly on the photo (if that was what you meant). He uses a number of subtle techniques to distort the 'reality' of the photo to achieve his desired intellectual and aesthetic ends which, I would imagine, is a subjective interpretation of reality (if that is what you are decrying a lack of). As an artist, he uses a number of techniques to achieve a given goal. Is it gimmicky? Maybe so if you want to see it that way. I don't, I see works of great depth and beauty produced through the application of consummate skill.

I would be genuinely interested if you could post some contemporary art in this thread you feel is of worth. I don't ask because I would want to belittle what you post but want to know who you value as an artist and is working within an aesthetic that you connect with. Surely, there must be some art that fulfills this criteria.

Curiously enough, there is an interesting theory that he did exactly that: he mixed some sort of primitive photography with a camera obscura and painting! I shall look after it and post it here.

All art is a subjective interpretation of reality. Add to this the subjective interpretation of art by the audience and the critics and you're in big trouble --- unless, of course, you don't subscribe to the old and wise maxim that beauty is in the eye (and, perhaps even more) in the mind of the beholder.  :D

For instance, you pronounce Michelangelo a genius, while Pope Julius II saw him as just a great pain-in-the-ass, while many of the cardinals held him in contempt as a pornographer. Who was right?

Be it said from someone who is not very keen on modern and contemporary visual art...

Curiously enough, there is an interesting theory that he did exactly that: he mixed some sort of primitive photography with a camera obscura and painting! I shall look after it and post it here.

The problem with Richter is that his paintings look like photographs, he doesn't just use them to give his paintings extra detail. The blur just seems to be a gimmick more then anything, something to give his work a more "artistic" edge over the hyper-realists.

Nobody is wrong, the cardinals picked the wrong subject to vent their frustration over the use of nudity in their paintings. It is true that the influence of Hellenistic trends did introduce pagan elements to an either wise pious art (that of medieval painting), but in the case of Michelangelo he was able to sanitize the more "daring" trends of his days and produce paintings which were "modern" without necessarily being vulgar and offensive to Christian sensitivities. Of course, there is nothing that could satisfy the John Ashcrofts of his day but that's a different problem.

Gerhard Richter, Lesende (1994)

Stunningly beautiful contemporary portrait by one of the giants of modern art.

Some people might know Richter by his study Candle (1983) on the cover of Sonic Youth's 'Daydream Nation'

Thanks for sharing that.

No argument from me here, too. As I said, I'm not a fan of contemporary visual art and if you ask me, I'd take Vermeer over Richter any time of the day (and night). But neither will I deny those who love Richter their pleasure. The world is large enough to acommodate us all.

I'm an engineer. I tend to think like that: take X, a classic (in the broadest sense) painter and Y, a modern (in the broadest sense) painter. Now, we have one of the folowing cases:

1. X has objective value, Y has not
2. X has objective value, Y has either
3. X has no objective value, Y has.
4. X has no objective value, Y has neither.

My personal (i.e, subjective) appreciation of either X or Y (or both) makes no objective difference in all cases. Test it mathematically and you'll see.  :D

Yes but the truth nowadays is pretty ugly. This is probably one of the reasons why naturalistic, traditional art looks so insipidly artificial this days. Its hard to be inspired by nature when we all live in a world made almost entirely of concrete and plastic.

Life has always been ugly: or at least had its ugly aspects, but being unflinching and truthful is not to dwell on ugliness. Many find beauty in his canvases. One purpose of art is to illuminate truth, he does that. There is nothing insipid in his art.

I actually saw some of his work while browsing through a list of modern artists- I think just yesterday.

I don't really see the whole reason of so many painters painting nudes, especially when (in the above example) they look so disgusting. Looking at naked ugly women or naked men is not my idea of a good time. And if they do turn out looking good, then it seems the picture may be to serve another purpose- something which isn't art.  ::)

An exception I can think of is Renaissance paintings, because in heaven, you have to be naked.  :D

Anyways... no one ever find a neo-Escher-like artist out there?

The ancient Greeks worshiped the human body for its perfection. Today, it is the grotesque that artists focus on because the spirit of modern society is rotten to the core. During the heroic period of our civilization (in Spenglerian terms), artists glorified the greatness of the human form and human existence:

Today, life is interpreted as ugliness, as befitting the defeatist nature of a dying civilization.

Twaddle. We have that heritage of the idealised body. Freud clearly chose to explore a reality. The body as it is, with its imperfections, the ageing body, gravity and the effect of time. Why is it ugly? Why is it only those with perfect bodies who are painted, the rest of humankind is supposed to hide itself?

He paints the world as it is, as indeed it has always been. His portraits suggest a lot more about the person than just the shape of the features. As do all great portraitists.

What are you talking about; artists of the heroic period glorifying human existence? Have a look at the dozens of paintings dwelling on martyrdom, Salome, the Rape of the Sabine Women.....hundreds of such works now hung on museum walls and worshipped by art lovers. Great skills put to possibly dubious ends, don't come across with that nonsense about a degenerating spirit of the age. Human nature has always painted human nature, good and bad. Freud's paintings seem to me to be morally neutral, he is an observer and he is not pushing a theology about life.

gerg, many of those bodies in the kind of paintings you mention did indeed cater to the salacious. Michaelangelo cannot be claimed to be exempt from that suggestion; have a look at his 'dying slave' sculpture.

So then, kignth, would that be considered art or Renaissance porn?  ???
And why so many guy statues... and why are their penises so small? That's not a very heroic quality. ???
Title: Re: Only the New (art)
Post by: knight66 on November 19, 2010, 12:40:21 PM
I am really not clear whether you want to get into this area of discussion or whether you are really just commenting.

But here goes:

The perfect male body and its proportions were evolved within Greek statuary. This probably had some connection with sex, but was more to do with the search for perfection.

The Romans coarsened the principles to an extent, that is to say the bodies are more likely to he heavier set.

Renaissance sculpture was heavily influenced by the Classical work, some of which was being unearthed after being buried for centuries and this in part caused the resurgence in this form of art.

The small penis is to do with proportion and what was felt to be classically aesthetic. The penis ought not to be the centre of attention, thus the modest proportion. There were specific kinds of religious statue in Greek art where it was certainly meant to be noticed.

The male tended to be used; as the muscleculture is considerably more demanding on the skills of the artist. They were also, as in painting, providing mythic or biblical references.

There was also the challenge to provide a statue out of a single piece of marble. The David was carved out of a piece that had been discarded as impossible to work. That is partly supposed to the the reason David's waist is so slim. It was carved out of the rock at an unusual angle to obtain the maximum use from the marble.

Quote
In Office at Night (1940), another “couple” painting, Hopper creates a psychological puzzle. The painting shows a man focusing on his work papers, while nearby his attractive female secretary pulls a file. Several studies for the painting show how Hopper experimented with the positioning of the two figures, perhaps to heighten the eroticism and the tension. Hopper presents the viewer with the possibilities that the man is either truly uninterested in the woman's appeal or that he is working hard to ignore her. Another interesting aspect of the painting is how Hopper employs three light sources,[60] from a desk lamp, through a window and indirect light from above. Hopper went on to make several “office” pictures, but none with a sensual undercurrent.

This really shows how out of touch with reality art critics really are. Sensual undercurrent? Eroticism? Projecting much? I can only imagine what they would say about this one:

I don't mind the women (at least, if they look good), but when you throw a man in there... just, sorry.  :-\

Still, though, I consider a picture like what I posted more "artistic" than anything involving people screwing each other (even if by the same artist). I like stuff that goes beyond the regular, basic activity of human life (food, sex, etc.) I value stuff that is, for example, cerebral, heroic, cathartic, etc. over stuff that I don't consider art (Porn or magazines with pictures of food). The only thing artistic about that picture is the technique involved- the screwing part isn't art.

I see what you mean... I also like to art itself to be open to anything, but some things just seem to me to be in poor taste (like, why can't that painting be just two people there, looking at each other)? What part of the brain is the element of two people doing each other supposed to appeal to?

At least in some ways you can cover it up- think of the scene in Seven Samurai where that young samurai is with the village girl- they don't show them screwing, and thus, it manages to remain artistic. She could have put a cloth over them from the waist down in that picture and it wouldn't be any "lesser." Actually, I think it would be better because I wouldn't have any problems with it.  :D

You can apply this to other things, too- though it's all about intention of the artist. I just don't like this aspect. That is all.  :-X

I suppose I can understand your point of view. I don't hold it, but I do find it bothersome, the way that you word your complaints. Saying what is and isn't art. I know I'm not at that point yet. I'm still at the gazing stage.

I'm with Greg (and partially with Josquin): why do I need a painting of a guy screwing a babe when I can have / watch the real thing?

Please show me paintings that evoke erotic feelings without any explicit sexual depiction and I'll gladly appreciate it as genius (pace Josquin).  ;D

Post by: Josquin des Prez on December 02, 2010, 06:16:28 AM
Eroticism is the very antithesis of genius. The first is consciousness submitting to the body, while the latter is consciousness elevated to the point of transcendence. I just watched Andrei Rublev again the other day and this point is touched upon during the scene depicting the pagan orgy, and the "shameful" allure it exercised upon Rublev.

There is of course a way to "sanitize" eroticism, and that is love, that wonderful feeling one experiences when taken by a woman which is so pure that somehow makes the idea of sexual intercourse seem almost distasteful (as it was to Brahms, for instance, who couldn't reconcile the two, sex and love). I'm sure we've all experienced that. It is that feeling i see in those paintings by Edward Hopper which is why i find the suggestion of "eroticism' in his work to be quite crass.

Eroticism is not the same as sexual intercourse, nor are they both the same as porn.

This is going way back in the thread, but the stuff about Japanese caught my attention.  This is a big generalisation, but generally...              uh... anyway, in Japan, a lot of people live by extremes.  Most people in the cities especially.  They work harder, play harder, art harder (huh???).  The television is busier with colours and sounds, even the decorations on vending machines are brighter, bigger, grander.  They'll be more serious, too, work harder, can be more formal than practically anyone in the US would ever be (part of this is based on having what virtually amounts to an entire separate language for formality, 敬語, kei go).  I'm only learning Keigo so far, for instance, and can barely understand anything when I try to watch clips of Japanese TV, radio, &c.  It really is almost like two separate languages, two extremes of behaviour.

I don't care for Japanese cartoons or comic books at all, but I notice in what little I'm exposed to that they tend to be extreme too: stupidly huge explosions, and so on.  Gargantuan castles, as seen above, everything has to be more, more, more.  Watch a video or look at pictures of Akihabara sometime; the Vegas strip is seen as "loud" in the US, but just do a comparison.  Yikes.  There's no district of any city that's that deliberately extreme anywhere else in the world that I know of.  And that's possibly not even the wildest area of Tokyo.

Trivia for Fun: Tokyo is not legally or technically a city.  It's technically the Japanese equivalent of a state, and in it, a lot of towns have grown together over time.  It's also not the legal capital of Japan, as Japan technically has no permanent location set as its capital.  Its capital is legally defined - at least to my limited understanding - as the last place the Diet officially met.  So if they have a quorum assemble on the slopes of Mt. Fuji for some event, I suppose that spot of ground is technically the capital of Japan until the next time they meet somewhere else.  Granted, neither of these trivia tidbits has much real-world value, just nitpicky legalities that are kind of bizarre and little-known.

I don't think its really possible to do that, unless you are a woman. Males exist in a dualistic state, that is, they are either lustful, or they are not. There are no degrees between the two, its the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing. Women are always in a state in which they can be fecunded, so they are neither lustful nor unlustful. They are always sexual but never really purely lustful, if that makes sense.

Ok, think of it this way. A man is either on and off. A woman can be either be always on, or always off. The entire concept for them is meaningless because their state of being never changes. Its not secret that the two are different, i'm just trying to explain the nature of the difference.

Yeah, it is more like a state. Technically, it's a metropolis, but the fact that it's so big and has so many cities and people in it makes it more comparable to being a state.

There are a lot of things about this world that i don't really wish to see. Art for me is a way to escape some of the ugliness of reality by losing my consciousness into something greater, something eternal. I remember the first day i read Kafka, i mean really it, with real understanding, i was just taken back by how sadistic it really was. That was the day i sort ran afoul with modernity in art, literature and to some extended music.

At any rate, here's a few paintings by illustrator Norman Rockwell. Not genius, but he has one of the best techniques i've ever seen:

(http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/files/2010/01/spanking-norman-rockwell1.jpg)

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_9MNlGOJb83Q/S72BqO8_J8I/AAAAAAAAAUg/ZCCclbEk7ps/s1600/normanrockwell36.jpg)

I think it was Nabokov who said Rockwell's great technique was wasted on such light subject matters, but i find his work enjoyable nonetheless. Amusing that he suddenly became a "serious" artist when he chose to paint on the subject of racial segregation:

I suspect that "Josquin" has in mind such episodes as the whipping scene in The Trial, or the whole of "In the Penal Colony," or the way Gregor's condition in "The Metamorphosis" is made into a source of humor. (That's what comes to my mind, anyway.)

This is going way back in the thread, but the stuff about Japanese caught my attention.  This is a big generalisation, but generally...              uh... anyway, in Japan, a lot of people live by extremes.  Most people in the cities especially.  They work harder, play harder, art harder (huh???).  The television is busier with colours and sounds, even the decorations on vending machines are brighter, bigger, grander.  They'll be more serious, too, work harder, can be more formal than practically anyone in the US would ever be (part of this is based on having what virtually amounts to an entire separate language for formality, 敬語, kei go).  I'm only learning Keigo so far, for instance, and can barely understand anything when I try to watch clips of Japanese TV, radio, &c.  It really is almost like two separate languages, two extremes of behaviour.

I don't care for Japanese cartoons or comic books at all, but I notice in what little I'm exposed to that they tend to be extreme too: stupidly huge explosions, and so on.  Gargantuan castles, as seen above, everything has to be more, more, more.  Watch a video or look at pictures of Akihabara sometime; the Vegas strip is seen as "loud" in the US, but just do a comparison.  Yikes.  There's no district of any city that's that deliberately extreme anywhere else in the world that I know of.  And that's possibly not even the wildest area of Tokyo.

Trivia for Fun: Tokyo is not legally or technically a city.  It's technically the Japanese equivalent of a state, and in it, a lot of towns have grown together over time.  It's also not the legal capital of Japan, as Japan technically has no permanent location set as its capital.  Its capital is legally defined - at least to my limited understanding - as the last place the Diet officially met.  So if they have a quorum assemble on the slopes of Mt. Fuji for some event, I suppose that spot of ground is technically the capital of Japan until the next time they meet somewhere else.  Granted, neither of these trivia tidbits has much real-world value, just nitpicky legalities that are kind of bizarre and little-known.

This is what i picture in my head nowadays when i think about Japan:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs1CA5hFdd4

The thing is that they seem to have gotten worse. Growing up in Italy i got exposed to a lot of older Japanese cartoons, and while many of them were excessive, a lot of them usually told many good stories filled with wholesome and kind values. Today its all flash and bombast. Some form of cultural decline i guess.

That's because you (like most people) only know about that aspect of Japan. I do like Japan's silly side, but when I started watching real anime, for example, I knew there was something more that most people don't see- a much deeper, more serious side. Here is an the opening to an anime I want to see (but it's 110 episodes long, so I won't for awhile)...

Although I find the art style ugly and am not a huge fan of wars in space, anything that starts out with Mahler 3 at the beginning (and basically has a whole soundtrack based on symphonies) while maintaining an epic feel to it definitely gets my interest.  :)

a) is there any chance you like the neo realism/classical realism movement? Most is kitsch or "commission a portrait of your dog" stuff, a lot of the rest is pastiche, but sometimes it demonstrates some potential.

This is a difficult one to convey; but if you stand in front of these large canvases, they have phenomenal impact.

(http://www.skyline.uk.com/img/allison_watt.jpg)

They have a spiritual dimension. One sits in a side chapel in the ancient Old St Paul's church in Edinburgh. It takes up almost all of the wallspace. Beautifully lit, it provides a place and point of contemplation.

The painter is Alison Watt.

http://www.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&xhr=t&q=alison+watt+shift&cp=13&wrapid=tljp129519808729606&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&biw=996&bih=566

They have little impact in a reproduction the size of a postcard, but to stand surrounded by these huge canvasses is quite an experience.

I think you can project just about anything onto them, but holy extasy and orgasm can, at least in art, look very like one another.

On the exhibition 'Shift'....the artist comments below: 'This exhibition is devoted to a new series of paintings depicting textiles. Unusually for Watt there are no human figures in the works, although the manner in which the depicted material folds and hangs suggests the human form. As Watt explains, ''It's only in the last few years I've realised the power of suggestion: that's where the erotic lies''. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue.'

That they show spirals with holes, make it suggestive yes, one can easily say it´s erotic or see something spiritual in it (as nature works with spirals and ellipse) of course because of it. And sheets let one think about bed. But does that make it art? Quite easy to achieve such an effect. But to use sheets like this is nice, but I wonder if it's original, because it's done more.

Eh! Easy! No not at all easy. This is a virtuoso utilising paint in a starting way and as I suggested; difficult to convey the impact if you are not in the same space as the canvases. You proved my point.

greg, if it is creepy you want, try Ron Mueck's hyper realistic pieces. They are almost alarming. Either huge or very small, he takes the human figure and places the viewer at 'the wrong scale'. You look at them and marvel at the technique, but much more than that you wonder and you think.

Bobby Goldsboro

I read about him in the newspaper- supposedly was a top-40 country singer. He lives in The Villages, Florida, which is about a 50 min. drive from where I live. A lot of his stuff is based on Florida nature scenes.

No I have not been in for a few months. Reading about the latest exibit did not inspire me to cut time out of the day to see it.

Tate Modern is on my usual weekend walk route, so luckily I didn't have to put much effort into checking it out. I would have felt a bit cheated otherwise.

Holy shit, man! This thing exploded. Thanks for all of the wonderful posts. It will take me days to get through them all, but thanks so much.

This isn't wholly modern, but the piece is so rad I just have to post it. Plus it is currently being exhibited, and I think it fits under the 'moniker' of 'modern'.

That looks great. I enjoyed the jolt of seeing his figures on the top of buildings around central London, but then were temporary.

In Edinburgh, along the leafey Water of Leith, there are a series of his figures wading in water or just looking at it. I have only seen photos, but next time I am up there I intend to take that walk.

Yes, seeing the figures on the roofs of the Southbank Centre was slightly unnerving first thing in the morning. But the 100 statues that make up Another Place in Blundellsands are an amazing sight; eerie and intriguing.

Pae White, Smoke Knows (2009). Saw this at San Francisco MOMA today. It looks photographic (in person, too), but amazingly it's a tapestry woven in cotton and polyester.

It's certainly a striking image; is it meant to be an updating of Munch's The Scream? But is it art? Or would it be put to better use as a brilliant advert for Amnesty or the latest torture porn movie?

I really like some of Bacon's work. Well, perhaps "like" isn't the correct word... This one always gives me a jolt. It's probably my favourite piece in Tate Britain. Apparently, it inspired the chestburster from Ridley Scott's Alien.

Post by: (poco) Sforzando on April 22, 2011, 05:25:31 PM
There are a lot of things about this world that i don't really wish to see. Art for me is a way to escape some of the ugliness of reality by losing my consciousness into something greater, something eternal. I remember the first day i read Kafka, i mean really it, with real understanding, i was just taken back by how sadistic it really was. That was the day i sort ran afoul with modernity in art, literature and to some extended music.

At any rate, here's a few paintings by illustrator Norman Rockwell. Not genius, but he has one of the best techniques i've ever seen:

(http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/files/2010/01/spanking-norman-rockwell1.jpg)
(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_n0ITs3GYvYU/TMSjnmDXDKI/AAAAAAAAAD4/ALHSxK-bapM/s1600/After+the+Prom.jpg)
(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_9MNlGOJb83Q/S72BqO8_J8I/AAAAAAAAAUg/ZCCclbEk7ps/s1600/normanrockwell36.jpg)

I think it was Nabokov who said Rockwell's great technique was wasted on such light subject matters, but i find his work enjoyable nonetheless. Amusing that he suddenly became a "serious" artist when he chose to paint on the subject of racial segregation:

(http://www.learntoquestion.com/resources/database/archives/Norman%20Rockwell,%20the%20Problem%20we%20all%20live%20with.jpg)

Really tells you how superficial the modern mindset really is.

Rockwell's works lost a great deal by being mass reproduced as covers for the Saturday Evening Post. If you have a chance to see some of his originals, some of them are much more subtle than might appear from the reproductions. Can't provide specific examples here, but when I saw a show of about 40 of his works at the Nassau County Museum here on Long Island, I was really blown away by the man's technique.

I'm a big fan of the intricate ink drawings by Daniel Zeller, which have been likened to topographic maps and have some of the improvisatory qualities of jazz:
http://www.madeinslant.com/2010/10/daniel-zeller-draws/

The first piece on that page is in my collection, and so is the top center piece by Shane Hope shown here:
http://shanehope.info/?paged=5
Hope's work has to be seen up close, however, because a miniature reproduction of this 24"x18" piece (many of his works are a lot larger, but consequently much more expensive) completely fails to capture its incredible detail. As the dealer who sold me the piece insisted, his work must be seen with a magnifying glass. These are all computer-generated images, with a hard surface lamination, and I've likened his work to a digital Jackson Pollock.

More figurative, if you saw the Bravo show Work of Art, was the work of Ryan Schultz, who works very painstakingly and slowly, and thus couldn't complete a work within the tight time frames of the realtiy show. I think he was the most talented person there, however, and his portraits - always of strung-out young people, addicts, junkies, losers - are handled with a spectacular eye for color and composition that reminds me, as in this one, of Ingres:
http://ryanshultz.com/slideshow/16.html

I didn't buy that one (it was very expensive), but it was quite impressive when I saw it at a Brooklyn gallery.

I was lucky to pick up the first two of these when he was selling them on etsy for almost nothing; he's gotten rather more expensive now. But I especially like the Poseidon piece, which I think is one of his most successful.

Cool! I like those, too!  :)
It seems like some type of style, but without a name. Just black and white, and with an austere mood, but not deliberately so- the pictures are almost humorous-looking.

I look at these and they remind me of something, but I'm not sure what. Maybe movies I've seen when I was kid, but those movies were in color, so it's hard to figure out what they remind me of.

What irony?

First of all, what defines art, the idea behind it or the work of art itself?
Second, the justification of making naive, popular art and somehow make it have seemingly more depth by saying it's somehow ironic. Sort of like imagining that the Eroica is an ironic portrayal of Napoleon. Which it of course isn't.

Or perhaps you meant to ask what Calvin meant by the snowman being ironic - he probably suggests that life isn't really as idyllic as the snowman makes it seem. That in fact people don't shovel their driveways or whatever.
 
At least that's how I view this work of art - perhaps the only comic I would really call art.

Lovely.

So is this definition rigid... of art?

Lovely.

Do I detect irony here, too?

So is this definition rigid... of art?

What exactly do you mean? If you ask whether I think that art is always the work of art itself and not some fancy thought inside the artists mind, then I'd say that the definition is rigid. Of course this doesn't mean that a symphony score inside Mozart's head is not art until it's written down. What I mean is that the idea an artist represents with the work of art is not in itself art. For example, if Shostakovitch planned to write a symphony mocking Stalin, the idea of mocking Stalin is not art.

Something like that.

And then there's of course the thing that Calvin is hoping to get the approval and money of the bourgeois, while ridiculing them, or at least claiming to do so.

Yes, but he was just trying to appear as more artistic with that statement of the work being ironic - and thus having greater artistic value.

Are there any artists out there using Escher's techniques? I have a big book with random works of art by people after him using his techniques, but most of them are just way too simplistic.

ok, maybe i'm arriving a little too late but you can try with István Orosz and Paul Noble for example.

I don't like a lot of this new art. It just doesn't do anything for me. There's no emotional appeal to it whatsoever. I'm not drawn into hardly any of the works that have been pictured here on this thread. But, then again, I'm an oil on canvas man myself, so this method of painting is where I determine whether a piece has skill or not.

Earlier this year Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes revealed - for the first time - a work of art from his post-comics retirement. For the past 16 years he's been teaching himself to paint in different styles, mostly for his own amusement, but this year he contributed a portrait to a Parkinson's fundraiser.

EDIT: It's NOT Calvin. It's a character from the comic strip written by the guy running the fundraiser.

I don't know what to say about this. It looks funny but creepy at the same time. It looks like in his eyes, he can tell he looks funny and feels awkward and a little bit sad/angry about it. It's like you can laugh at him until you notice his eyes. Then it starts getting weird...

Just found this interesting piece:

Postmodernism is dead (http://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/2011/07/postmodernism-is-dead-va-exhibition-age-of-authenticism/)

Quote
I have some good news—kick back, relax, enjoy the rest of the summer, stop worrying about where your life is and isn’t heading. What news? Well, on 24th September, we can officially and definitively declare that postmodernism is dead. Finished. History. A difficult period in human thought over and done with. How do I know this? Because that is the date when the Victoria and Albert Museum opens what it calls “the first comprehensive retrospective” in the world: “Postmodernism—Style and Subversion 1970-1990.”

Wait, I hear you cry. How do they know? And what was it? Postmodernism—I didn’t understand it. I never understood it. How can it be over?

I just discovered some of the best paintings I've ever seen. They use the combination of Escher's impossible techniques + a fantasy-style feel, which is exactly what I've been wanting to see.

Thanks for the post Greg.

These are simply names I come across.

I don't really think you like abstract art. From your the majority of your posts, I'd rank you more as a conservative when it comes to most things. Not a negative thing, mind you, but that sort of mindset is not really what this thread is about.

Somewhat... I guess my tastes lie mainly into stuff that might be: surreal, adventurous, mathematical/impossible, ornate/complex, etc. I do like some abstract stuff, such as Kandinsky, or the cubist stuff of Picasso, but a lot of these ultramodern artworks here I don't get at all. (you could probably make a similar statement about my musical tastes)

How much of this stuff you're posting do you like? I remember you saying you're just trying to put out some names and examples, and said you didn't like everything you posted (or maybe that was the music thread?)... but it's good that you're giving the artists exposure, anyways.

But all of those 'abstract' artists that you named are now part of the conservatism.

I don't think whether I like something or I don't really adds anything to the conversation. I prefer reflection on the pieces, and consider it a learning experience to see things that I haven't seen before, etc.

Hmmm... kinda depends on who you talk to. To the educated, cultured, person in the art world, yes, Kandinsky is conservative. To most other people, no. I'm not an art expert, but I'm not ignorant, so maybe that's why he seems to be in the "middle" for me?  8)

I don't know about if it depends on who you talk too. Especially if you contrast it with newer forms of art. Although, in a vacuum, perhaps it would still be considered daring.

I'd hope it was the summary for all of us.

I was fortunate to catch all five films at a theater in Dallas years ago. Everything from the costumes, locations, music, etc...were brilliant.

Cool to see the site is still up, thanks for the reminder  ;D

Post by: Cato on May 24, 2013, 07:31:22 AM
My grade school had an "Art Show" last night, which was well attended.

A former student, a highly sensitive and artistic type who is now a Senior in high school, was also walking around. (She has been accepted at assorted art schools, e.g. Rhode Island's School of Design.)  I asked her what she thought of the efforts.

She sighed, struggled to be polite, and her one slightly strabismic eye wandered toward a less than masterful collage.  Then she said:

"Well, I think it shows how sparse real talent is."   0:)

Which might sound snobbish: it was after all only a grade-school art show!  The efforts were not as good as in previous years (like when she was here  ;)   ).

Anyway, I thought the opinion was interesting.

Nice!

Many is the contemporary art show, whereof a talented artist of my near acquaintance has remarked, Seeing that work makes you feel that you are a great artist.

[...]Anyway, I thought the opinion was interesting.

What was interesting about the opinion, Cato?  That your former student---still so young---is weighing in on the early efforts of some kids?  Or the opinion itself?  At first thought, the opinion itself doesn't seem very interesting to me: virtually everyone says stuff like that, especially where the standards/tradition are clearly defined.  It does seem remarkable that with a promising future ahead of her, she already sounds like people who have already failed at creatively making things and channeled their bitterness and disappointment into exactitude.  (And I am someone who enjoys, admires, and respects criticism and scholarship as vocations that themselves benefit from talent, and sometimes from prior failure at practical/'creative' pursuits----as varieties of creativity.  But that requires sublimation of disappointment, not indulgence of the spirit of revenge.  Not that this latter is what is motivating her, as that would seem unlikely; but it just seems....so close.  Like a pre-echo.) 

How did she become so weary, so soon?
Title: Re: Only the New (art)
Post by: k a rl h e nn i ng on May 24, 2013, 08:21:46 AM
I don't know, I generally find it in bad taste for one artist to comment negatively of another artist's work - especially at the show itself.  And I think this despite all the quotes from very famous artists dissing their colleagues.  I do not consider that to their credit.

 ::)

What was interesting about the opinion, Cato?

Not that you asked me (you didn't) but what I find interesting (even necessary) is that the artist is developing a filter.  For an older, more experienced artist who has a body of work under his belt already, it becomes less necessary;  but when you are just learning your craft, you don't really get anywhere -- you don't learn how to do what you need to do -- by thinking, it's all great art.

We probably all agree that Dyagilev overstated it a bit -- he was just emerging from the era of Romantic sensibility, after all -- but when he said, "To be a great artist, you must learn to hate." -- there's an important kernel of truth in there.

I'll admit there is music which I consider utter rubbish. But then, neither do I have any need to blare out on a megaphone that it's rubbish, particularly on GMG where there may be a neighbor whom I wish to do no injury, and who quite likes that rubbish that music.

The girl was expressing (I think) not quite world-weariness with the comment, but rather exasperation with the modern scholastic atmosphere of "everyone is a winner" as parents and grandparents fawned over everything.

She is old enough and experienced enough now, as Karl says above, to have started filtering things.

How do you discover new pieces and makers, Philo?  It seems at a glance like you draw your images from a large number of sources.  I enjoy looking at contemporary art, but it's often hard for me to know where to trawl, and my investigation time can get pretty thin. 
Are there some useful feeds or aggregators or whatnot for looking at/for things?

My first rule is to always keep an open mind, and to not trust my first impulse. I also will post artists whose works don't appeal to me currently, as this thread is not about my personal preference, but rather about presenting artists who are currently still alive and working.

As to my method, it's largely luck of the draw (hyperlinking, usually) and the use of aggregation (category:wikipedia, usually).

Thank you, Philo.

I am not particularly a fan of his, but Tetsuya Ishida's art (http://www.toxel.com/inspiration/2008/11/07/incredible-paintings-by-tetsuya-ishida/) is grabbing. He died at the age of 31 in 2005 at a railroad. It is said that there is a possibility of suicide, but it is not clear, although Wikipedia concluded so.

(http://www.toxel.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/tishida3.jpg)

I recalled him when I saw this post.

greg, if it is creepy you want, try Ron Mueck's hyper realistic pieces. They are almost alarming. Either huge or very small, he takes the human figure and places the viewer at 'the wrong scale'. You look at them and marvel at the technique, but much more than that you wonder and you think.

That's some awesome stuff, and each painting seems to be trying to convey a message and although the general theme is clear, each specific message can be difficult to interpret. He probably would have been happier if he weren't born in a society that is so intensely workaholic-oriented.

side note: something I learned a few months is that the first energy drink ever developed was developed in Japan in order to keep workers alert, since they worked so hard for such long hours.  :-\

I think some of his art are too explicit, and I usually don't like art that expresses "messages" in a direct manner. But still, his paintings are intriguing.

Workers at start-up companies in Silicon Valley work very hard for a long time, too, but they seem more relaxed and merrier. Just an impression from my narrow personal experience.

I am not sure how much Ishida intended to express depressing nature of the society or how he wanted his works to be seen, but we can see his works independent from such things. They seem grim but also humorous. He might have been happy in his life, he might have died just by an accident...

Roger Luke DuBois (*1975) is an American composer, performer, conceptual new media artist, programmer, record producer and pedagogue based in New York City.

The music is also very nice.  It was composed and performed by DuBois and violinist Todd Reynolds. (I posted his music work at 21st century music thread.)

Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder lived in this giant hamster wheel for 10 days (from February 28th to March 9th). Shelley lived on the exterior of the wheel, and Schweder on the interior, because he's afraid of heights. They needed to sync their life style: when one wants to use a chair, the other needs to use his chair, too.

For me that's the entire point of this thread and the 21st century classical music thread. The whole point is to expand your conception of what is art or what is classical music. That's why they are the two threads I reference the most on this site.

If you like Art Brut, you may check abcd (art brut connaissance & diffusion) (http://www.abcd-artbrut.net/) that has been researching & collecting Art Brut. abcd was established in 1999, has been expanding its activities (developing abroad, opening an exhibition space, etc.)

It was a shock when I first saw the works of Henry Darger and others 20~30 years ago (I think they were called Outsider Art then), although it was not that I liked all of them.

I always like artists who use some kind of person as their main composition and build from that. Whether distorted or not, I find portraits to be an accessible medium to get more complicated emotions across to the viewer. Like, for example, Francis Bacon's paintings still scare the shit out of me. 8) Thanks for sharing this one with us, Philo.

That's a nice painting there, torut. Thanks for sharing. Hopefully, in time, I'll come to appreciate some of the other mediums in the visual arts. Just a quick question, what would stained glass be classified as? The reason I ask is because I love Chagall's work.

I am not sure what you are asking, but I think Chagall's works are fantastic. I don't know much about art classification. Are you looking for a term like "Neo Surrealism"? (That is what Lubeck's style was called. :))

I'm asking about the medium in which stained glass would be classified not what style a piece of art is in. I own several art history books that I've been meaning to read. Seems like now is a good time to read them. :)
Title: Re: Only the New (art)
Post by: torut on May 10, 2014, 09:48:41 PM
I think it's likely that stained glass would be classified under glass arts.
That is probably the answer to the Mirror Image's question. (The medium is glass.) I have another question. What is the art form of stained glass art? Painting, architecture, sculpture, or installation? (I am just curious. :))

Quote from: http://www.walkerart.org/
The Clock is a major cinematic work by New York–based artist Christian Marclay. Winner of the Golden Lion award at the 2011 Venice Biennale, The Clock samples thousands of excerpts from the history of film that indicate the passage of time—from clock towers to wristwatches to buzzing alarm clocks—that the artist has edited together to unfold on the screen in real time as a 24-hour montage.

Keret House (http://kerethouse.com/) (2012)
Architect Jakub Szczęsny

Quote
The Keret House is an ­art installation in the form of an insert between two existing buildings, representing different historical periods in Warsaw’s history.
Keret House is planned to be located on a plot ­measuring 92 centimeters in its narrowest point ­and 152 centimeters in its ­widest point.

Quote
The house is located here, because it is here that two architectural layers from two historical epochs tangene. The first is a brick building on Żelazna Street – a fragment of the pre-World War II city, almost no longer existing. The second – a cooperative concrete apartment building, an element of an “imposed structure”, which was aimed at negating the previous city landscape. Their adjacency is coincidental – like many architectural structures in Warsaw. Keret House is a perfect example of the so-called “non-matching” in the city’s urban fabric. It is a structure, which by way of contrast separates itself from its surrounding area and at the same time tries to act as its binding element.
Another reason is the city’s war history – the house's location is where two ghettos - the large ghetto and the small ghetto met. Only a few steps from the house stood a footbridge that connected both sealed off areas.

Visited the new building of the Perez Art Miami Museum,  which opened this weekend in downtown Miami's Museum Park.   (Those familiar with Miami will know the park under its former name of Bicentennial Park;  the art museum will be joined in due course by a new Science Museum building.)  The core collection is 20th/21st abstract and non-representational art,  resulting in a plethora of 3dimensional pieces and videos that don't necessarily fall into traditional categories.  There was also a room devoted to what was called concrete and visual poetry.  I am about as enthused about "modern" art as I am about "modern" music (meaning not that much), and the collection did not increase that enthusiasm; nor did it help that the curator staff seem to think that explicit ideological content will compensate for a lack of aesthetic appeal--and naturally that ideological content was always of the Extreme Left (the sort of politics/philosophy that insists on viewing everything through the prism of some Ism), which did not improve matters for me.  The bias was especially evident in the books offered for sale at the museum store.    There were some installations that I found interesting, one by Hew Locke and another by Simon Starling;  I'll try to post some pictures of them in the next couple of days here.   The non permanent exhibit,  devoted to a panorama of Caribbean art, interested me far more, and not just because it contained works spread in time from the 18th century to the present.   The chief interest was the high proportion of primitive/folk/naive art, especially from Haiti.  Unfortunately,  visitors are not allowed to take pictures in the Caribbean exhibit, only in the permanent collection,  so the works I responed to best are the ones I couldn't take pictures of.

The website is http://www.pamm.org/ 

Anyone who finds themself in the Miami area, and has an interest in modern/contemporary art,  will probably find this museum a very worthwhile place to visit.

The museum building, btw,  is very well done:  modern in style,  but low key,  with a number of terraces that allow views of the park on one side,  and Biscayne Bay, the Port of Miami, and the bay side of South Beach (and not so wonderfully,  the causeway to Miami Beach on another side),  it could usefully serve as a model for any public building.  The building is in fact a higher quality piece of art than much of the art inside.

I also took the opportunity to visit the US Coast Guard Eagle, a tall ship used for training purposes, docked for this weekend across from the American Airlines Arena (the place where LeBron was not doing so well this past week),  but that's outside the ambit of this thread.

Not sure why I like this one, but guessing that it's probably the watch. It portrays the contemporary vibe of modern consumer culture while at the same time maintaining a sense of experimental aesthetics due to its placement which is slightly elevated from the floor. This combines to form an enigmatic yet fresh portrayal of the contemporary spirit. Giggity.

For the day: Tauba Auerbach
http://www.taubaauerbach.com/

Tauba Auerbach and Cameron Mesirow designed a fascinating instrument.

(http://tauba.s3.amazonaws.com/large/0243%20Auerglass%20Organ-Tauba-Auerbach-large.jpg)

The Auerglass is a two person pump organ created by Tauba Auerbach and Cameron Mesirow (aka Glasser). The instrument cannot be played alone. Each player has a keyboard with alternating notes of a four octave scale. Each player must pump to supply the wind to the other player's notes.

A statics masterpiece! :laugh:

It's always interesting to me to figure out what possesses artists to make things like this, and I don't mean that in an unflattering way at all. Like, I would never look at the wheel of a desk chair and think "Oh! Why don't I take off that wheel, cut out a perfect 4x4 inches square of the floor ( subflooring and all), attach a poll, and lean it against a wall."

I enjoy looking at the stuff you post. Makes me think.

I love works of art that are beyond my comprehension and perplex me. But at first, it is pleasure of seeing. I like the color, texture, the feeling of materials of that part of floor in the Fremderman's work. (I doubt it is the structure of actual floor, but I am not an expert of flooring. ;D) I am glad you liked it.

I didn't think of it, but yes, it recalls Magritte to me too. What Olson's works reminded me of were Tadanori Yokoo's collage art and also cover illustrations of old science fiction paperbacks.

Seen at the Norton Museum yesterday, an exhibit for the four nominees of something called the Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers. http://www.palmbeachillustrated.com/Rudinprize2014
Each of the four had a small room to themselves.  Ms. Bohm and Mr. Maymon impressed me most, perhaps because both used graphic design instead of straight photography.  (Although so did Mr. Osoy.  Only Ms. Fawundu exhibited straightforward photography.)

ETA. Websites or at least webpages for each of the four.

I like it the most among Danger's works. Interestingly, the artist thinks it is unfinished and there is something wrong with it. As he put it, "quiet lit hotel pools at night always look incredible."

A young Polish (?) artist calling himself "lucjan_".

http://lucjan.tumblr.com/ (http://lucjan.tumblr.com/)

Professionally drawn dark, smudgy sketches are often superimposed with strikingly demarcated, clean, abstract splotches of glaring colour. They seem to be colour-coded references to the emotions trailing just "outside" whatever event he's illustrating. Simple, but powerful.

Sometimes he's a bit too bitter for my tastes (hard to avoid with artworks concerned with depression, fear, resentment etc.), but I'd recommend his galleries as well worth your time. :)

A quality blog, lots of interesting content:

Some contemporary Russian art, though a good deal of decorative/politically quite harmless pop art

"I was thinking through the illegibility of Black patients’ pain in the healthcare system. Black patients are overwhelmingly denied adequate pain management. Half of medical students believe that Black people feel less pain than white people."

That sounds like it should be included in medical textbooks. The image would stick in students’ minds.
